Churchill County Hosts Annual Jim Regan Golf Tournament

Seventy-five players participated in the Jim Regan Memorial Golf Tournament, a Churchill County-sponsored event for the benefit of scholarships, held on Sept. 14 at the Fallon Golf Course.

The annual event is held in honor of former County Commissioner Jim Regan, who was heavily involved in the community and passed while in office in April of 2000. The county’s Employee Management Committee runs the tournament with a cadre of volunteers.

Five scholarships totaling $7,000 were awarded earlier this summer from funds raised at the 2018 tournament. Those funds went to scholarship recipients Taylor Ingram, Kaylynn Perez, Brooke Shyne, McKenna Montgomery and Angeleena Tomb.

Tournament winners

The 2019 winning golf teams were:

  • 1st place: “Found It!” including Ed Smirnes, Jim Isbister, Andrew Palmer and Tomas Kutansky
  • 2nd place: “Chip In Dale(s)”. The Regan golfing tradition continued with Jim’s grandson’s Matt Chicvara’s team which included Owen Mackedon, Travis Hansen and Mark Burkhardt. 
  • 3rd place: “The Real Found It” team consisting of Troy Tweedy, Lawrence Mori, Brad Dolan and Randy Hines.

The Closest to the Pin prize winners were Tod Dericco and Jamie Davis while Joe Cushing and Aisha McDuffie won the Longest Drive contest. Camacho Auto Sales provided a 2019 Ford Ranger pick-up truck for the Hole-In-One prize but, unfortunately, there was no winner for the truck.
